inside a burned-out cob bin near big bear, california, but los angeles police say it's still too hot to go inside to confirm his death. the cabin went up in flames during the stand off with law enforcement. police swarmed the area and cornered dorner who had apparently been hiding out in the mountains. when they arrived the bullets started flying. cbs reporter carter evans was near the scene and recorded the gun battle on his cell phone. >> i hear some screaming. >> two deputies were shot in the exchange one of them died. officers were responding to a report of a man matching dorner's description driving a stolen vehicle in the mountains. >> he crashed the car and then took off into the forest. >> officers had focussed their search for dorner in big bear after they found his burned-out truck last week. the former lapd officer had been on the run since he allegedly shot and killed three people,
including a police officer. authorities plan to entered that burned-out cabin once it has cooled down and also is considered safe. los angeles police officials have been telling us there is a lot of live ammunition inside so those investigators need to proceed cautiously. live here near big bear, theresa garcia. now, back to you. >> now theresa we still don't have confirmation wouns again that dorner was inside that cabin so are police still patrolling the area with equal intensity in the chance the off chance that he could still be on the run. >> sure. well, liz, i mean, all indications are that there is a person inside the cabin. now, it's behind me on highway 38 several miles up the road and ahead they do have that road still closed off so here's the reason why cbs law enforcement source and others are saying they believe the body is inside. it has burned down for the most part but they also had that whole cabin in encircled an
entire perimeter. they knew there was someone inside there because there was gunfire exchanged. they were also trying to communicate but they never once saw someone exit so the sprumgs that they're still inside there. also, the law enforcement sources say there is a body in there. they still need to go inside and confirm that identity that it is christopher dorner and that there was no accomplice involved in this. of course, people are feeling that you know, there's relief this is coming to an ind but not until they finalize that identity liz. >> all right. theresa garcia in big bear. thank you. >> well, because he was right there when it all happened we want to show you more from cbs reporter carter evans tonight . >> i hear some screaming. >> authorityies are told us we need to stay low for our safety. moments ago we were caught in the middle of this gunfire
between christopher dorner and authorities. we're told that two deputies have been hit by that gunfire. their condition unknown right now, but take a look on the other side of this. you can see police. you can see the swat team just a little bit down the road. they've got dorner cornered in a cabin right now. they're preparing to move in, but it is unknown exactly how they're going to go about that at this point. time is on authorities' side. shots of tear gas inside the building and we haven't heard any gunfire for some time. >> now kpix 5 reporter david jackson is in southern california tonight. he'll have the latest in the live report at 11:00. let's set party interest aside and work to pass a budget that replaces reckless cuts with smart savings and wise invest. s in our future. >> the other big story tonight president obama gives his fourth state of the union speech, and he lays out his plans for his second term in office. kpix reporter tells us he wants
to increase the federal management to -- or the -- the federal minimum wage to $9 an hour. that'll bring a lot more troops home from afghanistan and wants to put more limits on guns. >> there's a speaker. >> in his first state of the union address of his second term the president focussed on the middle klass and millions of americans still looking for work and challenged congress to cut out the partisanship and help them. >> the american people have worked too hard for too long rebuilding from one crisis to see their elected officials cause another. >> the president emphasized his economic recovery program will not add toth deficit and he also outlined his plan to bring 34,000 troops home from afghanistan by this time next year. that's half the u.s. force there. >> and by the end of next year, our war in afghanistan will be over. >> gun laws were also a theme of the night. the president introduced victims of gun violence who joined the
first lady and members of congress in the chamber. he said congress owes them a gun bill. >> they deserve a boat. gabby gifford deserves a vote. >> in the republican response florida senator cautioned against higher tax sdmrs there's no realistic tax increase that could lower our deficits by almost $4 trillion. that's why i hope the president will abandon his obsession with raising taxes and, instead work with us to achieve real growth in our economy. >> now this is the beginning of a big push by president obama. he will take his message on the road with campaign-sthiel appearances in three states, north carolina, georgia and illinois starting tomorrow and coming up at 11:00 we'll take a closer look at his plans for gun control, one of the more emotional parts on his speech tonight. >> all right. thank you for that. another big point made by the president immigration reform. you'd think that would be welcome news for bay area
latinos, but some told kid doe what the president said was a bit insulting. >> it was a hard core obama crowd at a local union hal that included janitors and security guards and this is when they cheered the loudest. >> the time has come to pass comprehensive immigration reform. now's the time to do it. now's the time to get it done. >> but then the president detailed his plan for a path to citizenship that surprised the people in the room and left many of them scoffing and trading puzzled looks. >> a pass that includes passing a background check paying taxes and a meaningful penalty learning english and going toth back of the line behind the folks trying to come here legally. >> in oo group discussion they called the president's plan inhumane and insensitive to families who have been separated by deportation. >> i was pretty offended by being told we had to go to the back of the line again. he didn't have to say that. >> what they want is for
everybody to pay taxes but have to go to the end of the line and wait for 20 years in some cases. the backlog of visas now is 20 years. >> so you're not exactly happy with it, but you'll take it. >> i'll take it. i'll work with it. you know, it's better to work with something than to not have anything at all. >> the gop made history by having senator marco rub owe deliver part of the republican response in spanish all in an effort to appeal to latino voters. >> it's going to take a lot more than just speaking spanish for our community to really buy into what they're proposing. >> it's easy to see why the republican response was done partly in spanish. looking back in november the gop got just 27% of the hispanic vote but as one person close to rubio was quoted saying it's going to take more than one single speech to heal the republican divide with the new america. live in san jose, kpix 5. chuck hagel is one step
closer to becoming the next secretary of defense. the senate arms committee voted 14 to 11 to send the nomination toth full senate. that full senate vote could happen later on this week. haig faces some opposition over his past position on israel, iran and nuclear weapons. we also learned tonight once the pope retires he will retire to his summer home near rome but there are still some questions unanswered tonight. first, how will cliks r catholics address benedict. also what happens toth ring? the pope hasn't retired in 600 years so the church is entering somewhat unchartered territories. tomorrow is ash wednesday. the start of lent, and that means mardi gras and of course new orleans. a live look where the par toy officially ended about ten minutes ago. >> cbs reporter is in the french
quarter right now. big ann what's -- it's still cooking behind you looks like, huh. >> yeah. it certainly is. ken, elizabeth hard to tell that mardi gras is officially over. i'm going to step out of the way and you can take a look. the new orleans police department actually just came through on horseback and in police vehicles signifying the end of mardi gras and beginning of lent basically telling revelers it's time to go home, but if history is any indication they will just pour right back on toth streets to party well into the morning. >> in the french quarter the mardi gras celebration went on for bloshgs and will likely stretch well into the morning. katy just arrived from australia. >> fantastic atmosphere, alive and energetic. everyone is just having a great time. >> while heavy rain was expected, parts of new orleans only saw the occasional drizzle.
it was revelers who kept pouring on toth streets. >> some used umbrellas to stay dry, others to dance the night away. sisters vivian and colleen street are visiting from chicago and plan to take home plenty of mardi gras baed beads. >> today it's gold. i'm loving it. >> on mardi gras, anything goes which is why heather and brian said they spent months planning their voodoo costumes. >> it's mardi gras. >> have you cast any spells today. >> absolutely. we've kept the rain off. >> but their voodoo couldn't help butler. her float in the popular parade had to pull over so crews could replace a damaged tire. >> we got a flat in the tire started threading and it came clean off the rim. >> cassandra and her crew eventually got to rejoin the parade. at the stroke of midnight, lent begins and so does the count
down to next year's mardi gras. >> this year's carnival season was unusually longer. that's because of all the celebrating here in new orleans ken, elizabeth, because of the super bowl in town. as you can see behind me the party doesn't seem like it's ending any time soon. >> no. uong so. i think they've been partying since last month. haven't stopped. all right. thank you. the effects of something as inok would you say as drinking water can be catastrophic. >> and how that killed huns of fish in a bay area creek. plus reducing the risk of autism in kids. what pregnant women can do early in their pregnancy that seems to help. we are dry with another day in the 60s today. what's going to come first, wet weather or a day in the 70s? the answ
